There are some outstanding Business Class fares without a lot of sacrifices if you’re able to travel from Europe to the U.S. this summer, thanks to a strong dollar keeping European travelers closer to home.
While it would be great if these deals appeared on departures that start in the U.S., you can still take advantage of these fares if you’re planning to visit Europe twice this year.
One option is to use miles to book a one way award to Europe, then buy the cheap fare for your return, and use miles for the final return.
There are deals to many U.S. cities, but New York seems to have the best fares. Here are some examples across airline alliances…they are round trip fares with all taxes…
Even Economy Class gets some action from Italy and France…
Here are some route examples this summer…
Copenhagen to New York…
Dublin to New York…

So think about visiting Europe twice this summer, and using these fares to stretch your miles further. It’s easy to pull up Google Flights and find dates and routes that can work for you.
